Tlicy hnil hrrn nlK-mllii* n foollinll (nry. lltit l.r.Vnrmr •wlrtnw Srlrnn nc< thrr XJI rpTIE funeral was that Thursday. •*• Jerry took the whole day off to go to it, but I sent some flowers and stayed in the city. I knew he did not want me to RO with him, and there was no real reason why I should. When I got back to the apartment, Jerry was already home. He looked tired, and quiet, and somber in his dark suit and black tie. After a few tentative remarks I discovered that he did not want to talk, and silence Suited mo just as well. There are plenty of times when it is more comfortable simply not to talk, and our silence was a friendly one. After s upper Jerry looked across at rne. "They buried him out at the Clear Brook cemetery." "Oh," 1 said. . "I arranged for the stone. She asked me to." He paused and stared into the nmber of the .whisky. "She asked me whnt to put on the stone." I couldn't think what lo say to him about that. II was fill of n piece, I thought, with her be- hnvlor when we called nl her house that Sunday morning. He said slowly, "I told her just his name, and his dales and S. T. T. L." "Why that?" **T remembered your tolling mo that the Romans always put that on their tombstones." I thought of the inscription on a grave far out along the Via Appia outside Rome, a slone that an ancient Roman matron had erected for her husband, T. Sul- picius Arva. I remembered my Idling Jerry about it nnd what it meant—Sit tibi terra levis. "May the earth lie light upon thee," I murmured half to myself. He looked a little embarrassed. "Well, maybe it wasn't the right thing, but she was so proud, so steady, so in command of herself that I thought of her as one of those Roman matrons, and the whole thing just came into my mind. It seemed appropriate, somehow." "Oh," I said. Then what T had taken for an intellectual coldness that came from the mind because heart was not involved in Mrs. LcNormand's reaction to her husband's horrible death had seemed to Jerry a stoic, Roman suppression of emotion. Well, maybe he was right. I began to see her in « new light, oven lo discard some of the hostility thai my one encounter with her had aroused. • * * "WHAT'S she going to do now, I wonder?" And I found suddenly that I was intensely curious: what new niche could such a woman as Mrs, LeNormand find in life? She had told Prexy and Parsons thnt she had no family. Apparently, then, she had no home lo which she could go back. Jerry did not look at me as he replied. "I told her that she ought to get away. She needs to get away .someplace whore ihc life would be different, nnd take her mind off what's happened. Some- Diitfibwte4 by HEA Servi»/lr>c. place where she could disappear from sight, find new friends and a new interest in life. Don't you think that's the dope?" The entreaty in his voice was plain. He looked at me half defiantly, half pleadingly. "Well," I observed as casually as I could, "the obvious place is New York." "Listen," he said finally, "I know you think this whole thing is crazy. Probably it is. But to toll you the honest truth, I was wondering if Grace . . ." He slopped and looked at me. I couldn't imagine why he should mention her al this juncture. My mother is one of the most delightful women in the world. She is gay and charming, still looks only about 30, dances superbly, dresses in the most flawless taste, has & notable flair for interior decoration, reads a lot more books than you'd suspect, and lives the ideal life for her with Fred Mallard. He inherited about a million dollars at the age of 21 and wisely retired from life's more strenuous battles. » • • 1 DECIDED to be blunt "Where does Grace come in?" Jerry hesitated. "She could talk to her nnd, well," his voice got a bit defiant, "she could sort of tell her things," "What things?" He got red and looked away. "Things like how lo fix your hair right and where you get clothes, and all that woman's stuff." "Listen," I said to him, "Ict'i quit this beating around Ihc bush. There's no point in it. When if Mrs. LeNormand coming lo New York?" "Tomorrow." (To Ik Continued) TIRED SHOES MEAN TIRED FEET! HALTER'S QUALITY SHOE SHOP 121 W.
